Vitamin Code Story
Raw 100% Active

The world of supplements and vitamins can often be confusing for the everyday American looking to be healthy. One aspect that consumers often overlook is how a product is manufactured, and more importantly, what happens to the “raw material” during that manufacturing process.

Although many marketers employ a whole host of “novel” forms for vitamins and minerals, such as liquid drinks, gummy chews, chocolate chews, or effervescent drink wafers – the primary options are tablets or capsules.

Tablets are the most popular and widely available option to the consumer. As we have discussed in this book, so many people are looking for the convenient, once a day formula for their multi and the tablet is ideal for this market. The primary advantage of a tablet is that you are able to compress a relatively large amount of “raw material” into a compact pill that is “easy to swallow”. However, this comes with a cost.

In order to make a tablet, a surprising large amount of steps need to be followed in order to ensure the tablet takes the shape, and maintains the shape all the way from the factory to your cupboard. Ingredients are mixed, blended and sometimes ground or pulverized in order to make sure the particle size of the raw material is consistent. Depending on the raw material that is being tableted, binding agents are added to ensure the material holds together throughout the tableting process.

Just a few decades ago, small start up companies would manufacture their products “in their own garage”; however today the industry utilizes state of the art facilities and cutting edge technology and manufacturing best practices in order to realize efficiencies and speedier delivery to market. What this means is that practically all the vitamins or supplements you see in the store go through multiple stages and machinery in the manufacturing process.

When it comes time to compress that raw material into a tablet, a special machine that generates an intense amount of pressure “punches” the material through a mold or die. Unfortunately, along with the high pressure required to punch the tablet comes high heat as well which can alter or affect the integrity of the raw material. And as manufacturers are always looking to optimize production, they are finding ways to produce more tablets per minute. The fastest tablet machines typically have the highest heat and pressure.

One final step is required to ensure the material holds together through the packaging stage and the transport to market – spray coating. This is yet another step of processing the material will need to endure and this often times comes with ingredients or added compounds that are inactive (fillers) that comprise the coating, as well as high temperatures at the application of the coating and the drying time.

When evaluating the products available on the shelf, look for the term “Other ingredients”. There you will find binders, fillers, excipients, flow agents and other additives such as:

  • Maltodextrin
  • Corn starch
  • Magnesium stearate
  • Stearic Acid
  • Silica
  • Cellulose gum
  • Guar gum
  • Soy Lecithin
  • Milled soy

Some of these additives do have some nutritive value, but relatively low in comparison to the vitamins, minerals or other key nutrients you are looking to derive from the product. And on the low end 8-15% of the weight of the product can be these “Other ingredients” and on the high end 20-25%. And the regulations are not always clear on exactly how a marketer of the product is to disclose this to the consumer.

Encapsulation, on the other hand, is simply the filling and combining of two ends of a capsule with the raw material ingredients. The primary drawback of this delivery form is that you can fit less material into the shape size. For instance, one of the largest capsules available will hold approx 600 mg of material whereas a tablet that is approximately the same size will hold 1100mg of material.

The advantage of encapsulation, especially when aiming to deliver a RAW Food-Created Nutrient™, is that there are minimal steps in the process and you don’t have the need for binders, fillers, high pressure and heat tableting, or spray coating. So the material maintains its intrinsic value and pristine quality, all throughout the process to bring the product to market.

With the Vitamin Code RAW Food-Created Nutrients, you will find an encapsulated material that has been meticulously controlled and minimally handled to deliver you the highest quality nutrients possible. Vitamin Code formulas are uncooked,, untreated, minimally processed, and contain live enzymes and probiotics – delivering to you the ultimate in raw, whole food nutrition. They contain no binders and no fillers. Every ingredient in the product has nutritive value, making the Vitamin Code multivitamins 100% Active.
